Curriculum

Johnson's curriculum is founded on three principles:

  1. A foundation in all the key functional areas of business
  2. Strong analytical and decision making skills
  3. A high degree of flexibility in tailoring individual curricula

In our Two-Year MBA program, we accomplish these through:

  • Core courses provide a knowledge base in the functional areas of business.
  • Electives allow you to build skills and knowledge that are specific to your goals and interests. Johnson offers an unusual degree of academic flexibility; here you can choose courses not only from the MBA roster but from some 4000 courses offered all across Cornell.
  • Performance Learning experiences are embedded throughout our MBA program, from orientation through graduation. You'll apply theory and models to gain intensive, hands-on experience in teamwork, leadership, ethical decision-making, and strategic thinking. In particular, immersions deliver exceptional preparation for internships.
